Blog Features Updates From Two Conferences Focused On Infectious Disease Research

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog features “live-blogging” from two events, the ID Week 2013 meeting that took place last week in San Francisco and the AIDS Vaccine 2013 meeting this week in Barcelona, Spain. The blog highlights a presentation on HIV prevention and another on tuberculosis vaccines from ID Week (Aziz/Lubinski, 10/4). From the AIDS Vaccine meeting, the blog notes, “This will be the last conference dedicated solely to HIV vaccine research. The next conference for sharing such information will part of the HIV Research for Prevention 2014 Conference in Cape Town, South Africa.” The blog adds, “‘Science Speaks’ will be covering the research, releases, issues and plans as the conference unfolds, starting today” (Barton, 10/7).
